Slaughter of Horses for Human Consumption

On Wednesday, February 19th, 2014 in Get Involved

Slaughter of Horses for Human Consumption

Horses are ordinarily kept and treated as sport and companion animals and are not raised primarily as food-producing animals. They are commonly administered drugs that are so toxic to humans they are strictly prohibited from being used at any time in any animal intended for the human food supply.

It is not credible that horsemeat products derived from Canadian and US horses for human consumption in domestic and international markets can be considered safely free of highly toxic and prohibited substances.

Help Elizabeth prohibit the importation and exportation of horses for slaughter for human consumption!

Sign below or download this petition, have as many people as possible to sign it, and mail it – postage free – to either her Ottawa or Sidney offices. With as few as 25 signatures, Elizabeth can present your petition to the government in the House of Commons.
